Power Spheres

Power Spheres

This is a recipe adaptation from the cookbook Rebar by Audrey

Alsterburg and Wanda Urbanowicz, which is a cookbook from a lo

lovely restaurant called Rebar in Victoria, British Colombia. These

little protein packed balls of goodness are perfect snacks or even

great for breakfast too because they are nutrient dense & are

bound to give you a burst of energy! Vegan, gluten free, and

delicious…what more could you ask for really? I made these for

the Kennebunk Health Fair this past April, and a number of people

asked for the recipe so here it is.

Yields: About 15 spheres


3/4 cup dried apricots

3/4 cup dried apples

4 brown rice cakes

1 cup unsweetened coconut

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/3 cup sesame seeds, toasted

1/2 cup rolled oats

3/4 cup agave syrup (or a fruit sweetener of choice)

1/2 cup natural peanut butter, slightly warmed


1. In a food processor, pulse the apricots, apples, and rice cake into a fine texture. Transfer to

a large bowl and set aside.

2. Next pulse the coconut, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and oats to roughly combine. Add

to the fruit mixture alone with the agave and peanut butter.

3. Mix everything together until well combined. Cover and chill for at least one hour.

4. Roll the dough into balls that are about 2 oz. Roll balls in toasted sesame seeds to coat.

5. Serve or store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to two weeks…if they ever last that long.
